artificial intelligence no longer a thing of science fiction. computers are taught to read, speak, think, and even reason. charlie rose stepped inside the mind of the machine for "60 minutes." >> a super computer -- >> john kelly the head of research at watson. he took us inside watson's brain. >> here we are. >> here we are. >> feel the heat already. >> the 85,000 watts. blowers cooling it. this its the hardware that the brains of watson sat in. >> reporter: five years ago, ibm built the system made up of 90 servers and 15 tera bytes of memory. enough capacity to process all the books in the american
3:41 am
that was necessary because watson is an avid reader. able to consume the equivalent of a million books per second to. day watson's hardware is much smaller but just as smart. tell me about watson's intelligence? >> it has no inherent intelligence as the it starts. essentially a child. given data and outcomes it learns which is dramatically different than all computing systems in the past which really learned nothing. as it interacts with humans it gets smarter. and never forgets. >> reporter: that helped watsonland a spot on one of the challenging episodes of "jeopardy." >> an ibm computer system able to rapidly understand and utilize language. watson. >> it took five years to teach watson human language to compete against two of the best
3:42 am
>> because watson's ai is only intelligent as the data it ingested. and it was trained on wikipedia and books. and it used algorithms to fiend patterns in the massive all. data and formed its own observations. when asked a question, watson considered all the information and came up with an educated guess. >> watson? what are you going to wager? ibm gambled its reputation on watson that night. it wasn' >> i will take a guess. what is baghdad. >> even though you were only 32% sure of your response, you are correct. >> reporter: the wager paid off. for the first time a computer system proved it could master human language and win a game show. but that wasn't ibm's end-game. >> man that is a big day isn't it? the day that you real i that if we can do this, the future is
3:43 am
>> reporter: this is almost like you are watching, something grow up. you have seen the birth. you have seen it pass the test. you are watching adolescence. >> that is a great analogy. actually on the jeopardy game five years ago when we put that computer system on television, we let go of it. and i often feel as though i was putting my child on a school bus. and i would no longer have control over it. >> reacting to something that it did not know >> had no idea what questions it would get. self-contained. i couldn't touch it any longer. it's learned ever since. fast forward from the game show, five years later. >> you have gone from game show to cancer in five years. >> five years ago, watson learned to read and answer questions. now it has gone through medical school. ibm has the enlisted 20 top cancer institutes to tutor watson in genomics and oncology.
3:44 am
doing residency is at university of north carolina chapel hill. dr. ned sharpless runs the cancer center here. >> what did you know about artificial intelligence and watson before ibm suggested it might make a contribution in medical care? >> not much actually. i had watched it play "jeopardy." i knew about that. i was very skeptical. i was like, oh, this is what we need. that's going to solve everything. >> reporter: what fed your skepticism? >> cancer is tough business. there is a lot of false prophets and, false promises. i'm skeptical sort of almost any new idea in cancer. i didn't understand what it would do? >> what watson's ai technology could do what the doctor and experts do every week at this molecular tumor board meeting. they come up with possible
3:45 am
patients who already failed standard therapies. they try to do that by sorting through all of the latest medical journals and trial data. but it is nearly impossible to keep up. >> to be on top of everything out there, trials taking place around the world, seems like an incredible task for any one university, any one facility to do? >> it's essentially undoable. understand we have sort of 8,000 new research papers published every day. read #,08,000 papers a day. deciding on therapy based on information always, in some cases, 12, 24 months out of date. >> reporter: however a task elementary for watson. >> they taught watson to read medical literature in a week. it was not very hard. then watson read, 25 million papers in another week. and, then it also scanned the web for clinical trials open in other centers.
3:46 am
this, complete list, that was sort of everything one needed to know. >> reporter: did this blow your mind? >> totally blew my mind. >> we have the watson recommendation. >> wrouga >> watson proving to be a quick study. the doctor wanted to see if watson could find the same genetic mutation his team identified when they made treatment recommendations for cancer patients. >> did analysis of 1,000 patients. human meeting in board doing the best they could do made recommendations. not at all hypothetical exercise. real world patients. we conveyed information that could guide care. in 99% of those cases, watson found the same thing the humans recommended. that was encouraging. >> reporter: encourage confidence in watson. >> nice to see. incurred my confidence the humans.
3:47 am
part in 30% of the patients. watson found something new. that's, 300 plus people, where watson identified a treatment that a well meaning hard working group of physicians hadn't found. >> because? >> trial opened two weeks earlier. paper in a journal no one had seen. new therapy approved. >> 30%? >> that part was disconcerting. thought it would be 5%. >> disconcerting 30%. >> real things by our own definition we would consider actionable at the time of the diagnosis. some cases like pam sharp got a second look to see if something had been missed. >> when did they tell you about the watson trial? >> he called me in january. they sent off my sequencing to be studied by watson. >> genomic sequencing. >> like the compute r on jeopardy. he said, yeah. >> what did you think?
3:48 am
>> pam has bladder cancer and for eight years tried and failed several therapies. at 66 years old. she was running out of options. >> and, at this time for you, watson was the best thing out there? because you tried everything else? >> i have been on standard chemo. i have been on clinical trial. and, prescription chemoi am on isn't working either. >> one of the ways doctors can tell whether a drug is working is to analyze scans of cancer tumors. watson had to learn to do that too. ibm's john kelly and team taught the system to see. >> this is an x-ray scan of a human. >> it can diagnose disease and catch things doctors might miss. >> what watson has done is look over tens of thousands of images and knows what normal looks like. it knows what normal isn't. it has identified where in this image are there anomalies that
3:49 am
>> you had the ct scan. >> billy kim arms himself with watson's input to figure out her next step. i can show you the interface for watson. watson flagged a genetic mu tigs in pam's tomb mumor. it enabled them to put a treatment option on the table. >> what would you say watson had done for you? >> it may have ede and i don't know how much i'm i've got. so, by using this watson, it's -- it may be saved me some time. that i won't, wouldn't have had otherwise. >> reporter: but pam sadly ran out of type. she died a few months after we met her from an infection, never getting the opportunity to see what a watson adjusted treatment
3:50 am
dr. sharpless used watson on more than 2,000 patients and is convinced doctors couldn't do the job alone. he started using watson as unc's standard of care so it can help patients earlier than it reached pam. what do you call watson? a physician's assistant? physician's tool? a physician's diagnostic mastermind? >> yeah, feels to me like a very comprehensive tool. imagine doing clinical oncology up in north carolina by yourself, you know, a single or one physician, two physician practice. 8,000 papers get written a day. you want to try to provide the best most cutting edge modern care for your patients possible. i think watson will seem to that person like a life saver. >> if you look at potential of watson. today, 10% of its potential? 25% of its potential?
3:51 am
potential. i think this is a multidecade journey that we are on. we are only a few years into it. we are only a few years into it. >> we will have the rest of today you can do everything in just one click, even keep your toilet clean and fresh. introducing lysol click gel. click it in to enjoy clean freshness with every flush. lysol.

60 minutes report on artificial intelligence and how it is about to change the way we live. >> reporter: in only a few years, beam beibm invested $15 in watson and data analytic technology. ibm rents watson to education and transportation. >> i found these places that are popular around here. >> reporter: that helped revenues from watson grow while the technology itself is shrinking in size. it can now be uploaded into these robot bodies, where it is learning new skills to assist humans. remind me to take my pill at 10:07. >> not a problem. >> reporter: like a child it has to be carefully taught. >> wave to the crowd. >> i do not know how to wave. >> and it learns in real time. >> raise your right arm.
